I did a search but does she really not have a thread?
I was trying to double check about her being esi because I thought I had memory of hearing that, but it's been years since I've read her
Simone de beauvoir - INTP Huxley

ILI imo, same type as sartre
I considered IEI for her in the past, but she seemed rather unemotional in the interviews I have seen. definitely Ni-dom, though.
this was one of the interviews I have seen. her speech seemed very fast.
“Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day. The housewife wears herself out marking time: she makes nothing, simply perpetuates the present … Eating, sleeping, cleaning – the years no longer rise up towards heaven, they lie spread out ahead, gray and identical. The battle against dust and dirt is never won.”
a sensing type for example might not see these pragmatic activities as torture. intuitives on the other hand really struggle with it, their mind simply cannot focus on a pragmatic, repetitive task for long without getting a headache.
ILIs typically exhibit a general detachment from day-to-day affairs. While an ILI might devote a great deal of time to pondering the possible consequences of some political decision, very little attention is likely to be paid to such tasks as household maintenance or cleanliness, which the ILI sees as trivial matters undeserving of his time or effort.
